A northeast Ohio sheriff's office is investigating an incident where a woman was injured when a deputy allegedly pried her mouth open after she took prescription Tylenol.
The Akron Beacon Journal reported Wednesday the woman didn't believe she was in custody and felt free to take the medication for a tooth infection.
A sheriff's spokesman tells the paper the woman was in custody and was stopped from taking the medication for her own protection.
She was charged with resisting arrest and obstructing official business after the May 8 incident.
